The Catholic Diocese of Nashville and other dioceses nationwide are continuing their legal battle with the Obama administration over the contraceptive mandate for employers. The Nashville Diocese and seven other area Catholic groups sued over the mandate in September. They say the mandate violates their religious freedom because the church teaches that contraception is immoral. A U.S. district court judge dismissed the lawsuit in November. The groups recently appealed, based on favorable court rulings in other states.
